So far, this summer has been trips to the playground, swimming in the pond. Visits to the amusement park. Gardening.
No school. No stress. No deadlines. No pressure.
But it doesn't make for good blogging. It's not like I've gone head-to-head with Mother Nature like KathyB or anything! I don't even have batteries for my camera, so I haven't taken a single new picture during the past month.

Scott's also working a lot at the ice cream shop, and he's on antibiotics, for the second time in a month, for some type of antibiotic-resistant germ whose name usually strikes up a panic, so I won't mention it here. All I wanna know is HOW he got it, TWICE. But he's always been kind of a walking auto-immune disaster.
Conor, Clare & Theresa get no mention here. I guess they haven't been particularly good OR bad.
It's been in the high 80s every day this week.
Okay, now that I've resorted to mentioning the weather, I'm convinced this post is over.
